The Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa has fined e.tv and eNCA ten thousand rand for “dangerous misinformation” aired on an episode of Gareth Cliff’s show, So What Now?. In the episode aired on 22 July, Cliff and conspiracy theorist David Icke claimed Covid-19 was a scam that didn’t exist, leading to Media Monitoring Africa submitting a complaint to the BCCSA saying the broadcast was unlawful, harmful, and in breach of South Africa’s broadcasting code. The news channel has been ordered to pay the fine by the 15th of this month.
